How to Ride a Motorized Scooter
Now that you’ve chosen the perfect scooter for your needs, it’s time to learn how to ride it! Riding a motorized scooter is not too different from riding a regular scooter, but there are a few things you need to know before you get started.
To ride your scooter, first you need to get on. To do this, stand next to the scooter and place your right foot on the deck, or platform, in the center of the scooter. Then, with your left hand, grab the handlebar and swing your leg over the seat so you are straddling the scooter. You should now be sitting on the seat with both feet on the deck and both hands on the handlebars.
Now that you are seated on the scooter, it is time to start moving. To do this, simply push down on the right handlebar with your right hand while simultaneously kicking off with your right foot. As you start to move forward, begin to twist the right handlebar toward you with your right hand. This will engage the throttle and cause the motor to start running. Keep twisting until you have reached your desired speed; then let go of the throttle and just coast along!
To stop the scooter, simply twist the left handlebar toward you with your left hand. This will engage the brake and cause the scooter to slow down and eventually stop. Once you have come to a complete stop, put down both feet to keep the scooter from rolling away from beneath you.
And that’s all there is to it! With a little practice, you’ll be riding like a pro in no time!
